I think the better headline would be:

"Today may be Heisenberg's 120th birthday, but you couldn't tell by looking."

I guess we have to wait for August 12th. Or.....on January 4th, we could say:

"Today may or may not mark the anniversary of Erwin Schrödinger's death."

Today may be his birthday. We can measure his birthday as accurately as we wish so long we accept that the corresponding energy has a large uncertainty.

Little known fact: Heisenberg was once given a speeding ticket. A cop pulled him over, and asked "Can you tell me how fast you were going?" His response: "No, but I can tell you exactly where I am!"

It may be Heisenbergs birthday but I can't be certain

He measured Schrödinger's dog, which then became a cat.

Maybe it's today.  Doesn't it depend on where his grave is located?

He's the one who knocks.

It's not called Schrödinger's Uncertainty Principle.

No, no, no, we can't tell if yesterday was his birthday.  Only his mother knew the initial conditions.

It was a momentous occasion... somewhere.
